I have installed FreeBSD onto SanDisk Ultra Fit 16 GB USB 3.0 flash
drives. I like these for their compact form factor, which reduces the
chance of mechanical damage to the drive and/or port/ motherboard.
However, they run hot, they are not a good choice for high-endurance
applications (I cooked a 128 GB model using it for Time Machine backups
in a MacBook Pro), and write performance is an obvious limitation when
running a graphical desktop. I have experienced problems with both
FreeBSD and Linux when using these drives in USB 3.0 ports, but not with
USB 2.0 ports.
